From the backyard today (with companions - sometimes...)
The day started off sunny but it's clouding over now - hopefully more rain on the way! I went for a stroll around the backyard with Misty and Phoebe - although Phobe wanted to just survey things from her observation post at the top of the stairs on the back porch. She blended in so well with Randy's lounge chair that it's hard to see her...
What she can see from her post at the top of the stairs (I've posted this view quite often!):
She did finally join Misty and I under the pines but didn't stay long:
Looking back towards the porch:
Looking towards the shed:
Phoebe did wander back to join us briefly and then headed off past the shed to sniff around in the compost heap! This view is looking along the path that runs from under the pines past the shed. If you look VERY carefully you can see Phoebe's back end disappearing around the corner :-)
The brief walk around the yard seems to have exhausted Phoebe!
